Theocentrism in New Shape and Vigour — the Ways of Islam
In the first six hundred years of our era, the appeal of the theocentric paradigm spread all over the world, all areas of civilization in the eastern hemisphere being affected. Yet it was not genuine theocentrism which had been carried so far. Whilst theocentrism with only the modest modifications manifested in Judaism and in Zoroastrianism remained limited to the particular peoples of which Judaism and Zoroastrianism respectively became the national creeds, spectacular headway was made by those versions involving more far-reaching compromise. These were typified by the interbreeding of the theocentric with other paradigms such as anthropocentrism in the West and psychocentrism in the East.
